Chickpeas snacks

February 13, 2013 1 comment

Hi,

Sometimes you expect to do some recipe and you end up with another different one, this was one of these times. I was trying to cook a chickpea hamburguer and ended with these snacks, awesome.

Ingredients:

  • 200 gr chickpeas
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 egg
  • Breadcrumbs
  • A bunch or parsley

You need to left 200 gr of chickpeas on a big recipient with water all night, the recipient needs to be big because chickpeas will grown considerably. Strain the chickpeas and then crush them on a blender until the size of the crushed pieces are like 1/8 of a chickpea.

Add the crushed chickpeas on a bowl, and add also 2 crushed garlic cloves, a bit of chopped parsley, a bit of salt and one egg. Mix well everything and the add  enough breadcrumbs to dry a bit the mix.

On an oven tray place the chickpeas mix with the help of a mold, and then press them them strongly. Cook in the oven at 350º F for 25 minutes and your  chickpeas snacks are done.

Hi,

This is for me a top recipe, it is easy, requires you near no time, it’s delicious, tender and juicy.

Ingredients (for 1-2 people):

  • Chicken (better drumsticks)
  • 2 onions
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Whine wine
  • Soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves

Let’s start putting the chicken on a food bag, and lets add salt, rosemary, thyme, a bit of soy sauce, a bit of olive oil, 4 or 5 garlic cloves crushed with your hands, 2 onions cut in about 10 pieces and finally cover all with white wine, do your best to close the food bag and let rest for one night in the fridge.

Next day place the chicken on an oven recipient, better with the skin on the up side and cook in the oven at 350ºF (180º C) for 90 minutes.

Important potatoes

Hello!

This time I come again with a vegetarian recipe, but a really good one for winter cold days. It’s a typical spanish recipe original from Palencia, and very economic.

Ingredients (for 1 person):

  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • Saffron
  •  3 garlic cloves
  • A bunch of parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Paprika
  • 1 egg
  • Flour
  • White wine
  • About ½ litre of oil to fry

Let’s start peeling the potatoes and then slicing them, having slices about half centimetre thick. Pass each potato slices first through flour and then through a whisked egg.

Add oil in a pan or pot and wait for it to be hot, fry the potatoes in several batches for about 3 minutes. Then reserve them over paper towels in order to remove oil excess.

Chop an onion and put a bit of olive oil in a pot, then add the onion a bit of salt and 2 bay leaves. Stir from time to time and cook about 6-7 minutes. While cooking the onion put in a mortar 3 garlic cloves, a bit of saffron, a bit of salt and a bunch of parsly grinding them until well mixed.

Add a bit of white wine in the pot, the content of the mortar, one teaspoon of paprika and the already fried potatoes. Add enough water to cover the potatoes passing above like 2 fingers  and cook for 20 minutes. Instead of stiring it, just shake the pot in order to avoid break the potatoes.
